I have generic USB Flash Drive 8GB USB 2.0. After plug in, the files are saved on it. The files remain there as long as the flash Drive is connected to the computer. But once the flash drive is safely removed from the computer and plug in again to check the saved files, no thing is left there ( completely blank). The flash drive has been formatted for a number of times but still giving the same problem. Can you advise me to remove this problem? Thanks email < chems88@Yahoo.com> Dated Aug. 4, 2008

Re: USB Flash Drive
By chance was the flashdrive formatted in NTFS? If so, try FAT32.
Also, if you are right clicking a file and using "send to", don't do that. Try "copy" instead, then go to My Computer, right click your flashdrive and select "paste." Then safely remove and see if the files are there.

physical damage is the most common reason a flash drive isn\'t detected. The connection between the USB connector and the circuit board can become disconnected after even normal use. A telltale sign is a loose or bent connector, but sometimes the damage is undetectable with the naked eye. if you want to do this your self..If you accept the risk and choose to repair your flash drive yourself, the first step is to apply light pressure to either side of the flash drive while it is inserted. Make sure the sound on your computer is on so you will hear the "ding" if the connection is momentarily reestablished. If you do get an indication, you can try to hold your flash drive in the position that causes it to show up. While you hold it in place, ask someone to access the drive and save your files to your computer. This requires a steady hand and if you have a lot of data on your flash drive, you might have to hold it in the same position for a long time.
what happens if you right click on the photos select properties you will see an array of options select the advanced tab you should see 2 panes with options something like allow this file to have contents indexed in addition to the file and compress file to save space among other options or it might be something related to Deel software you are using
1.Plug in your USB 2.The first time the device is connected to the computer the PC will load up the drivers. Be patient. 3.The PC will recognize your USB SanDisk Cruzer Flash drive. 4.Click on My Computer/Computer icon on your desktop(or start - computer) and after that click on your flash drive icon. 5.There you can see all files on your flash drive and right click on your chosen picture and copy. 6.Right click (example desktop) and paste.
Try reformatting the flash drive. Copy all your important files somewhere, since reformatting the device would erase all saved data. Go to "My Computer", right click on the usb device, click "Format...", click "Start" on the window that pops-up, click "ok" and wait for the formatting to finish. This should erase all data on the device, including hidden files that might be taking the space up.
Once you put the flash drive into the USB port, double click on the "my computer" icon. This will open up and show all available drives on your computer. The flash drive will have its' own drive letter. Once you log into i-tunes, when you go to save the file, make sure it goes to the flash drive. If your USB port is not recognizing the flash drive, try to do a system restore to a previous date. Try to go back at least 30 days (if you have created restore points on your system), then re-connect the flash drive and it should begin to install the proper drivers. If this is not your only USB port, try another one, if it is your only port, try plugging another USB device into it and see if it will recognize it.
You use it like a floppy disk, you can copy files to and from your computer to the flash drive,then take the flash drive out and the put into another computer to share, ie. to download and copy files to from other computers such as a friend's computer. The files can be anything, music, photos etc.
When you go to save your data in your application program it should let you save it to: go to my computer and look for the drive letter of your new flash drive and give your data a specific name and save it to that drive letter. You will be able to open it up by going back to my computer and double left clicking on the same drive letter and see your file their. Double left click on it and it should bring it back up for you. Hope this helps, let me know if it don't and we can go futher from thier. My E-Mail is email@example.com
